Dispatches from the COVID-19 Financial Front

Reply Sat 18 Jul, 2020 05:34 pm
I have a pal who works at a Kroger in Ohio. She has asthma and really shouldn't be exposed to Covid. And she's the one who's got to police mask usage, or at least try to. Corporate America has taken a stand (sort of) but then gave their employees zero tools to deal with the people throwing mask tantrums (for tantrums they sure as hell are).

Some poor cashier is going to get killed, or some kid in a store will be hit with stray gunfire by one of these yahoos. This situation is not going to go well/end well.

PS One bit of hope -- we were actually able to get hand sanitizer at a decent price today, first time since March. Star Market even had it on sale for a buck off.

things are about to turn bad. Very bad. Worse than very bad.
The extra money tacked on to the unemployment benefits is done. The temporary restrictions against evictions are or have expired in many states.

More businesses closing permanently each day.

Still no light at the end of the tunnel.... Not sure if we've even reached the tunnel yet.

Over here many supermarkets have said they’ll tell people to wear a mask but won’t force it. The police have already said that they’ve go too much on already without issuing fines for mask avoidance.

When I was last shopping a message came over the tannoy saying that not all disabilities are visible and some people not wearing masks can’t.
